Data management is essential to make sure that well-organised, well-documented, high quality and shareable research data can be produced from our research projects. In this free 90-minute online workshop, participants will learn about the relevant legislation, such as data protection legislation and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Participants will also learn about strategies that enable them to share research data. This includes carrying out an assessment of disclosure risk, obtaining informed consent, anonymising data and regulating access to enable data to be shared.

Thu 28 Apr 2022

Data management is essential to make sure that well-organised, well-documented, high quality and shareable research data can be produced from our research projects.

Time series analysis and forecasting are among the most common quantitative techniques employed by businesses and researchers. Largely used in big data, these methods are used to identify trends, clean your data, and to predict the future. This workshop begins by exploring the underlying concepts and components of time series analysis, then moves on to a code demonstration that uses open-sourced police recorded crime statistics to visually explore these components. Participants are invited to work alongside the code demonstration to gain hands-on and practical skills.
